Things to Do Before Applying for Google AdSense
Everyone wants to make some good money with AdSense. But it’s not easy to get into AdSense program now a days. You have to do few things before applying for AdSense.
Google AdSense is world’s largest Ads Network and works at Pay per Click system. Its paying rates are better than all of other networks which is the biggest reason it is so popular to all Bloggers and Webmasters. But since everybody is running behind them, they have made the approval system very strict. You make little mistakes and get disapproved every time. So you need a complete guidance and list of thing that you need to do before applying for Google AdSense and supposing that you are ready.
Name/ Email Verification
Make sure to put you Name and Email address in some easily visible area like About Me and Contact Us pages. It will confirm to Google AdSense Team that it is the same person who applied for AdSense and not some spam, crappy bots.
Minimum Number of Posts
There is no exact answer. Not even one. Because I have seen very established Blogs with 400+ posts and their owner telling me that Google Adsense is rejecting them while somewhere ,people with 40,50 posts are enjoying making money. Exactly what I said that there is no actual answer. However, we can always predict things. According to my experience , you should only apply after you have more than 70 posts. Posts length should must be 500+ words too.
Top Level Domain
Those are gone far away when Adsense used to approve “Blogspot” and “WordPress.com” Blogs. As for today, you must have your own unique domain that specifies your Blog. If you don’t have one yet, stop dreaming about getting approved with Sub domains and go buy a Top Level Domain.
Another important thing about domain is it’s age. Because for most of Asian Countries, Adsense has placed an age restriction. They don’t accept any sites before they are 6 months old.
Submit Site on Search Engines
Whenever you launch a site, you always want that people can discover your site easily. Search Engines are the place where people you find your site easily.
All you need to do is submit your sitemap on search engines.
· How to submit site map on Google.
· How to submit site map on Bing.
And also make sure that Google has indexed your site’s pages. Type site:yourdomain.com in Google Search and check whether Google indexes your site or not. Sometimes Google takes one week or more to index your site. If you’ve some relevant backlinks, you pages will be indexed fast.
Publish Fresh and Unique Contents
This is the most important part.
You have to create fresh and unique contents before applying for Adsense. Adsense doesn’t require huge contents, but quality contents. Some bloggers got Adsense account with only 20-30 posts, while some didn’t get approval with more than 100 posts.
So quality contents matter a lot. Quality contents are those which are well-developed and researched, free from copyrighted things and illegal download links, not copied from others, user-friendly and detailed. Your posts need to have more than 500 words.
So try to publish some quality content. Remember, Quality content is always king.
Other Things to Consider
· If you’ve more the one site, then consider applying with best site.
· Your content should be written in English or other Adsense supported languages.
· Give your actual information while applying for Adsense account.
· Your age must be 18 years or above to participate in Adsense Program.
· Sometimes Google requires 6 months older domain in certain countries including China & India.
· Avoid Paid Traffic. (Adsense doesn’t require a lot of traffic)
· Don’t use copyrighted image, Use Images with Credits.
· Get Google Authorship.
